Why do I get "compile error SYN 3: SQL text is not closed with ";" " when compiling my SQL based script?

Why do I get "compile error SYN 3: SQL text is not closed with ";" " when compiling my SQL based script?

This may be a result of a known issue in Silk Performer 6.0 which occurs with // characters inside single quotes ". These are valid SQL comment characters but are seen as BDL comments by the compiler. For example, the following will cause a compile error because of a combination of the // and single quotes around the text:

TMain_SQL1:
[

BEGIN INSERT_TEXT( 60 ," //Hello World" ]


To work around this issue you can replace the single quotes with double quotes.

TMain_SQL1:
[

BEGIN INSERT_TEXT( 60 , " //Hello World" ]

 

The issue issue has been fixed in the patch below, which is for SilkPerformer 6.0.1 Build 1816. Please consult the Readme.txt contained in this zip before using this patch. Also addressed in this patch is an issue whereby a SQL script cannot be parsed if BDL keywords occur in a string constant.

If you are still experiencing problems after installing this patch then please contact Support.
